I feel like even if ‘Nurse Holly’ had stated that avoiding countless partners, unprotected sex, and literally having sex with people who have STDs would protect against getting STDs, she still would have received backlash.
I personally didn’t feel like she was being judgmental. The TikTok video simply makes a suggestion. Granted, abstinence, although not preferable in today’s society, is one of many options that would protect against STDs.
Hypothetically, let’s say you have a patient who repeatedly gets curable (as luck would have it) STDs and asks you how he or she can prevent further infection. Let’s ponder those options, shall we?
So tired of nurses acting a fool on their large platforms. Promoting irresponsible and biased rhetoric regarding public health in an effort to go viral is so low and so so dangerous. Abstinence teaching does not equate to safe sex. So here’s my response 🤷🏻♀️ pic.twitter.com/vTlX5KbvCK

I know her videos usually promote Christ in some fashion but she literally didn’t even mention Jesus in this particular post.
Gotta love how the girl on the left says that Nurse Holly’s post is “irresponsible rhetoric.”
But let’s be honest… not having sex will inevitably protect you from getting an infection from it. It’s science, common sense, and logical reasoning all in one!
